This is a lovely hotel but beware that you don't get a room that faces the main street: Chambersburg Street. It is a throroughfare and busy all night long and for some reason the noise of the traffic reverberates loudly in your room. Other than that, it is lovely and comfortable. We didn't try the breakfast left in the refrigerator... More

Thank you for staying at the James Gettys Hotel and for taking the time to review our Boutique Hotel. We are an historic property and have done everything possible, including triple-pane windows on the front of the building to reduce the street noise. One of the main reasons that people prefer to stay in town is to be among the... More

This was a spur of the moment return stay at James Gettys Hotel in downtown Gettysburg. Our first stay was wonderful and so was this one. The room was very spacious, comfortable, quiet. Location is central to the town square. Staff as always is personable and always available after hours. This is always our first choice when in Gettysburg.

I worry that others will book our find to the point that there is no room for us to return. I love that it I located right off the square and so much is in walking distance. Our room was perfect and the staff was friendly and helpful. We will return!!

My husband and I stayed for one night. Our suite was huge, beautiful and very clean. We wanted to stay longer. Perfect location for going out on the town in Gettysburg - we were in walking distance to our destination the Garyowen Irish Pub. Can't wait to go back.

The hotel's location is perfect, right off the square. The room was large, clean and charming and the staff was pleasant. Great having a refrigerator and being able to make coffee in the morning.

A quick trip to Gettysburg...The staff there took very good care of us! Loved reading about this history of the building. The only very slight issue was we were just a bit too warm at bedtime (around 11 pm) in our 4th floor suite. We opened the window but the noise from the Blue Parrot next door made us close... More

Thank you for your kind review and feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We do apologize about the restaurant noise next door. Being right downtown has many benefits as we are within walking distance to everything. However, being downtown can also have its disadvantage of noise and traffic.

Overall a nice experience. Room was CLEAN! Food was good and suite spacious. Parking available and service good. Wifi good- Bed was a bit hard, bathroom didn't have enough space to place things and only one mirror in the whole place. Would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at the James Gettys Hotel this past weekend after having found a deal on LivingSocial.
